[laughter] >> how is it that america is able to innovate so well given all the challenges we have great companies like that performing so well? >> in other words, the nation is a great innovator. how do you explain that? how does i continue to have been? >> it's kind of like a statement about democracy. you know, it's a bad system, but it's the least bad. well, the united states is the lease that encourage innovation. in silicon valley actually everything is particularly good at encourage innovation. the silicon valley orders of magnitude that is in any place in the world for creating new companies and fostering innovation is quite remarkable. so i don't think we actually need to worry about another country out there out innovativeness. i think like him a like him salinization in the world comes from america. it's true. a ridicul

'm not supposed to root for one candidate or another, but it's the government of indiana, i like him because he's 5 ft.'6",w to the ground, in touch with people, you have to be down there. i think he's been in an extremely effective governor at a time when state budgets have ballooned and gone up 40% state after state. in indiana, the debt has gone down 40%. at the same time, a lot of programs that republican matter have been improved. even wait times at the department of motor vehicle have dropped from 60 minutes to 8 minutes. i think he's been effective government. i think the government that the republicans would do well to counterprogram against the graceful, elegant and brilliant democrat that may not be charismatic, but knows how to run things. i think the other two are mitt romney and tim pawlenty. managers, i'm less enamored. pawlenty was a good governor, but i haven't seen as much management. i think republicans have two problems. the first is they to their credit and this is to obama's deficit, they are saying we have to tacklen titlements. that is a courageous step. because the gover

at them is not the answer. >> host: a couple minutes left. john, independent from indiana. john, good morning, you're on the air. >> caller: hello? >> host: yes, we can hear you. >> caller: okay. when is the smoke screen going to come down? you know, our economy is not stuttering because of taxes. our economy is suffering. we have 14 million people out of work. we've got a poverty rate of 15% now, and it all boils down to the wto treaties that we're giving our jobs away to china, and this jobs bill here has three more fair trade deals in it. why doesn't anybody address the real issue on if everybody that was working and paying taxes and 40-some thousand or 40 million factories still working here in the united states, we would not have a tax problem. thank you very much. >> guest: well, i think there's a distinction between sort of long term trends and the immediate crisis. you know, the reason the unemployment numbers are spiking this week -- you know, that is not particularly because of jobs moving overseas. that's a long term trend, and we have to look at the currency manipulation a
